What's a good alternative to Audible.com for audio books?
Audible.com is expensive, has a stupid policy where you can't simply pay for what you want, but rather you have to join and pay monthly or annually for credits which can expire if you don't use them all (yes, a portion will rollover). And they have a strict DRM -- tough to convert their .aa files to mp3s.
Audible also has many complaints about people not being able to cancel. I hope there is a good alternative.
Bizzarely Amazon doesn't yet seem to sell audio book downloads with their music mp3s.

Check with your local Library. The Boston public Library offer hundreds of downloads via Overdrive. You have to "check" them out just like a book and are good for 30 days. Some you can even burn to CD.

To echo the previous respondent, your library likely has tons of good stuff for free both online and on CD. Also, check out Librivox (www.librivox.org) if you're into classics -- it's free, amateur public domain readings of stuff with expired copyrights. The reader quality isn't always that great, but some of it is pretty good.
